Location - Cha-Am Beach Road South
The route to the run site from the Hua Hin direction involved a long detour that was deemed necessary because of the large number of Thais visiting Cha-Am for the Queen's Birthday and Mother's Day holiday.
Our celebration was for the CAH3 12th Anniversary but it was tinged with sadness as we observed a minutes silence for the passing of Scotch Tape with nearly all present having many memories of a great hasher and true gentleman. The trail followed some of the route of last New Year's Eve run in the delightful Cha-Am Forest Park, perhaps not so delightful for the very tall guys who had to stoop under vegetation that had overgrown the paths in several places. There were more forest paths for the runners after the split but for the walkers it was all the way back along the Beach Road although there was some nice scenery of a different kind. Then came the big disappointment the celebratory free beer was only LEO, no Chang. However, Dragon Tail did a great job serving monster hot dogs with salsa and just about any sauce or relish you could think of. Then, Colossus's grandson, Spencer, was down-downed as a virgin and Space Cowboy was welcomed back after a long absence because of breaking his toe.
